Davey Johnson Had Back Consultation with Dr. Robert Watkins IV

After suffering for a long time from back pain, I scheduled an appointment at Marina Hospital. I had a consultation with Dr. Watkins. He performed a bunch of tests to see what exactly was causing my chronic back pain and the answer was two ruptured discs.

Davey Johnson

I was in a lot of pain and it was starting to become impossible to focus on even the simplest of tasks. To me, it made perfect sense when I was told that I had two ruptured discs. It was Dr. Robert Watkins of Marina Hospital who found them. He’s great. I’m very appreciative of the fact that he was thorough with his examination, you can tell he diagnosed many other pro athletes.

I’m going to have to figure out what the next step is, and while that makes me a little nervous, I remind myself that I have an expert spine surgeon on my side, that’s Dr. Watkins, and the incredible staff at Marina Hospital. It can be hard sometimes to trust others with your issues, but I am confident that he will find what will work best for me.
